The Drones are the more common form of adult Xenomorph, hatching from most medium sized humanoid hosts like humans and elves. They serve as the workers and warriors of a Xenomorph hive. Drones construct Xenomorph Hives, using a resin-like secretion that they produce, and hunt and collect hosts for impregnation. Drones are usually 7-8 feet tall and 14-15 feet long.
